At The Ode To we are always curious to learn more about creativity and artistry, so we asked Julia Gescher to tell us a little bit about her life, her art and her sources of inspiration.
What do you call your series of artwork?
– I've named this series "Table Talk."
What technique have you used?
– My primary tools are oil and oil stick.
What inspired you to create the artworks you have made for The Ode To?
– I aimed to convey the sense of lightness I often experience when sitting at a table with dear friends, savoring the present moment. The theme of play is also a recurring element in my work, reflecting experimentation, the uncertainty of outcomes, and the willingness to take risks—all with a touch of lightness.
Can you tell us about your background and how you came to be an artist?
– My artistic journey began in childhood, but I initially pursued Communication Science in Amsterdam. It was during a semester abroad in San Francisco that I rediscovered my artistic calling, ultimately leading me to Berlin to study Visual Communication (Graphic Design). While I cherish my career as a graphic designer, painting offers me the freedom of complete creative expression.
How would you describe your art and aesthetics in three words?
– Colorful, Playful, Vibrant
